Trying this with files gives

$ svn cp wc/zag wc/zig
../svn/subversion/libsvn_wc/copy.c:156: (apr_err=150002)
svn: Entry already exists
svn: 'wc/zig' is scheduled for deletion, it must be commited before being overwritten

which looks like the same limitation that we have for directories,
with the difference that it is caught at the copy stage rather than
the commit stage.

However, for files this works

$ svn rm wc/zig
$ touch wc/zig
$ svn add wc/zig
$ svn ci wc

and for directories this works

$ svn rm wc/zig
$ svn add wc/zig
$ svn ci wc

So an item that is schedule delete can be replaced by 'svn add' but
not by 'svn copy'. Odd.
